Dr Ekram rang to say - after attending the 4-day Workshop last month - he has now passed the OET - at last! One very happy man! We wish him all the best as he embarks on furthering his medical career in Australia. 26 Sept 2017
SMS received 25 Sept 2017. Hi Marg, this is Chloe who was in your 4-day intensive OET workshop last month. I passed! I just wanted to say thank you for your help during the workshop. I didn't feel really well after the test so I thought I wouldn't pass the test but tada!! I passed! As you told us during the workshop, the reading part was easy but the writing part was quite tricky. Thanks to the tutor in the speaking workshop [I am not sure about his name name but he said he used to be a Doctor doing IVF) because the writing part was about a woman who had seen a gynaecologist and had had a few cycles of IVF. If I hadn't asked him what IVF was, I wouldn't be able to pass the writing subtest! Anyway, many thanks to you for all the help during the workshop. The workshops helped me so much and you are a great teacher! Wish you all the best. Chloe.
Editor's note: This was Chloe's first OET test - she scored A for Speaking; B - Writing; B - Reading; B - Listening.

Good day Marg,
My name is Ranielle, one of your students who attended your OET workshop last month (Feb 2017). I just wanted to thank you for all the help that you have given me. I received my test result recently and I am happy to say that I got B in all of the 4 subtests. I can now apply for my registration. Thanks so much Marg. I wouldn't have passed my tests if it wasn't for your help. (16 Mar 2017)
Dear Marg This is Sunny, one of your students from China. I was tutored by you last summer. While you were helping me to prepare the OET, I received a 4B-pass from the OET centre. I am now an Australia RN, and am waiting for the invitation of the permanent residency. I would like to thank you for your high quality of teaching. Also, I'd like to introduce you one of my friends who has been struggling with her OET preparation. Her name is Catherine. Yesterday she asked me about how to prepare for the OET. I said ''I know someone who is a great OET tutor. I should have known her earlier. If so I would not have taken the test three times.'' Would you mind if I send your email address to her ? Yours sincerely Sunny (12 Feb 2017)
Hello Marg, Thank you very much for your help.I passed the OET test. With regards, Git (8 Feb 2017)

Dearest Marg, I just want to say thank you for making me confident during my exams. I passed it through your help. I must say that the listening was really hard that time,it wasn't because of the accent but because it was really fast and I was lucky enough to pass. May you continue to help others in fulfilling their dreams and may God bless you always. (July 15, 2015
Dear Marg, I just want to let you know that I passed OET in June. I believe the intensive course helped me a lot. Thank you very much.
Hello Marg, [more from Alex - see below]
Thank you so much. I will forever grateful to you, Jan and the OET workshop. May your workshop help other students who are preparing for the exam and for those who are struggling to pass the exam. I hope that my actual exam experience that I’ve shared with you will help other students too. That’s the real deal especially with the listening subtest, no wonder why many students fail the listening subtest because of its very very bad Aussie accent plus it’s so fast. The OET practice materials in the OET website for listening and speaking is not a genuine example of an OET exam, it’s not reliable. It’s very different from the exam. I really want my other email to be publish in order for the other people especially the Filipinos in the Philippines who will take the exam to be encouraged to enrol in your workshop. I’ve read your testimonial page before I enrolled in your course and I only find one fellow Filipino who passed the exam last year, most of your students are either Indian or other nationalities who are residing in Australia. It’s very hard to find a reliable OET workshop here in the Philippines who are trained English teachers specialising in the OET exam which offers a good value for money. We have XXXXXXX Australasia here that offers OET training but it costs too much and not all Filipinos are rich to afford it and there are a few who offers cheap price but it’s not reliable. Your workshop is the cheapest, reliable, convenient and Jan is very good, nice teacher and OET trainer. May you have more like Jan. Thank you again and all the best! Cheers, Alex 19 June 2015
Dear Mdm Tolliday, I cleared the OET. Thank you so much for your support and I would like to continue practice speaking with you after July.

Thank and regards M. (Dentist) 17 June 2015

Hello Marg and Jan, 16 June 2015
Thank you for the support and believing in me that I would pass the exam. Marg even told me that I would pass with flying colors. However, I was not expecting it because I had a hard time on the exam day. Anyway what’s important is that I did pass the May 23, 2015 exam: I got B in all subtests in one sitting. Both of you are very supportive and very nice. Your course in OET workshop really helped me and I hope that you will be able to help other students who will take the OET exam and those who are struggling to pass the exam.Your guidance, tips, strategies and encouragement helped me passed the OET exam. More power and God bless you both. Special thanks to my tutor Jan: you are very professional and supportive especially with my speaking skills, I’m very worried about that part but you gave me confidence and supported me all the way. I hope that one day I will be able to meet both of you and thank you personally. All the best, Alex , Nurse from Manila Philippines (Please kindly publish this to your OET testimonials so that other students/candidates will be inspired)

Dear Marg, I passed the oet exam with four Bs. Thank you for your support. Your four day intensive program and practice exercises were so helpful and I improved my skills. I would like to appreciate your support after that course. You corrected my letters and your comments also really helpful. I couldn't believe this.. I am so happy about my results...Thank you so much again. Kind Regards Narmada
Dear Marg, How are you? Today I got the results for the 18 th Aug OET. I scored grade A in Listening ,Reading and Writing. And got grade B in Speaking. First of all my heartfelt thanks to you for guiding me in the right direction and giving me positive and encouraging comments. In your last email you wrote to me -" You have strong English skills" and that's greatest appreciation I have ever got so far for my English. Thanks again for organising such a wonderful course and helping candidates to go forward in their career.
Dear Marg, Finally, I passed the exam. I want to thank you and Marianne for your help and also for the useful, practical sessions that we had. As a student, I could see that you put so much energy to have a useful session and it was obvious that your goal was teaching not just taking student's money. I have learnt so many things from you and know I need to study more.
All the best, Nima.
It's me again... I have a good news this time , I have passed my IELTS exam: listening= 8 reading =8 writing =8 speaking=8 Remember I came to you for one face to face writing class 3 to 4 weeks ago .

Hi Marianne, The results for the May OET are out, and i have passed it =) with 3As in reading, listening and speaking. I got a B in writing. Thanks for all the help and encouragement! The good thing about the test being held in Singapore is that the interviewers are Singaporeans, so their slang is similar to mine.For the speaking practice with you, I felt that you did a Great Job! Thank you for giving me the important tips! Especially on how to start and close the conversation. This is because the interviewer just started the test by talking about her concern. So, i had to introduce myself first, then proceed with the tasks given.Your tips proved useful for the test =) Just encourage the other students to incorporate speaking english into their daily life =) Once again, Thanks!
Hello Marg, How are you doing? This is to inform you that I got my results from OET May examination and I have got an 'A' Grade in the writing section. Many thanks to your efforts for the success. I will be appearing again in the OET July test as I got 'C' grade in reading section. Thanks again.
Warm regards, Jahanvi
Dear Marg and Marianne, Thank you very much for your help. I passed the OET test, got B for all the bands. Pretty happy about it, even though I expect more, but in the end of the day I passed, that's all matter. Now it's just matter of finding a job. Anyway, I really appreciate your support and help during my OET preparation, it's been such a great help as I studied for 1 month only. I wish you all the best for the future, and I won't hesitate to recommend your course to my friends.
Best regards, Sitha

Dear Marg, Hope this message finds you well. I saw yesterday the results....thank God I passed. I got B in all the subjects.
Thank you for all your help.
Thank you for your great support in the four days workshop preparing for OET. I have enjoyed very much the classes with other students. The test on 12th Mar 11 was not as hard as I expected. However, as you have mentioned many times in the workshop there certainly was not enough time to complete all questions, especially Part A in reading (gap fillings) and also the listening test was a bit tricky as well. In writing, there was a lot of details about the patient for the discharge letter. I was very nervous and uncomfortable during the interview even though the interviewer was talking very friendly all through the interviewing.
I would like to say thank you to you and all your staff again. Without your support, I could not have sat the OET confidently. If my result was not successful I might need your help again to prepare for the next test in May.
I can't believe it.I passed OET.I am really pleased. Thank you so much for training me.You really made me confident.
Dear Marg, I'd like to thank you and for your friends helping us to manage the OET test. I did it, they just put the results on the internet.
Listening: B Reading: B Writing: A Speaking: B
THANK YOU! I am absolutely sure that without your course I wouldn't have done it.
You were right: they treated us like stupid people, it was very frustrating. But it was easy to handle it because you prepared us what to expect.
So again, thank you very much for your help.
I have got B' for the oet test. Thank you for your help.
Thank you, Vineetha
Hi Dear Marg,

The words cannot express how I am thank full to your efforts with me, four trials was too much for me and every repeat required tremendous effort for me to sit the exam.
Thank you again and again. I hope to see you one day when I am in Melbourne and I will be there soon. Let me dry my tears now and see you soon.
Take care Haidar
Thank you very much for your kind reply. Yes, I found the grammar booklet very helpful. Thanks for that. Always your feedback encourages me to keep working hard and even it affects my thesis writing which is wonderful. Please, feel free to let me know about my mistakes. Always my dad advises me that just the best friends let you know your mistakes. So you are one of my best friend.
Dear Mrs. Marg Tolliday, I am greatly thankful for your unlimited support and guidance. You were one of my best teachers I ever met and I am very proud that I was one of your lucky students. Your passion for teaching, non-stopped support and assurance made me more powerful and encouraged to extract what was hidden inside me. Feeling that my teacher was beside me all time made my skills sharper and directed to the point.
During the last few days I could not write to you because I was overwhelmed with exam, and I am extremely sorry that I could not do my last minute speaking preparation because we started the exam late and then finished late, around 02:30 pm. However; I was confident and calm which made me do relatively well in the exam. Now I am trying to relax and suppress my thinking about the exam, and hopefully waiting for a good result.
You have a great shiny reputation in Melbourne, and one of my friends strongly recommended your courses. Regrettably, I came form a very long distance to attend your course but I did not see you. However; with help of god and searching hard I got your contact numbers and thankfully I met you.
Having had in this experience, I would do my best to help my colleagues in Saudi Arabia and conduct the best of it by distributing your e-mail and contact numbers, after your permission, and guiding them to your website. I do not think they will attend your live courses in Melbourne but I am confident that they will enrol in your online courses.
You are one of the Australian treasures that should be kept in a very safe glassy place to send its light without being hurt. God bless you
Your one-day Saudi student, REDA
Hi Marg, Thanks a lot for your support and giving me strength.

Hello Marg, I am very happy to inform you that I have cleared OET exam with Listening A and all other modules B. I am very grateful to you for your guidance and support.
Thank you very much, (Dentist)
Dear Marg, I am willing to give my comments about the grammar book. It is well organized. You have included all the important and interesting grammar points there. Everything is explained clearly and simply... I can learn many words relating to medicine while concentrating on grammar. It will also be helpful for speaking. I see this book as multipurpose ... I give you my heart-felt wishes to continue with worthy causes like this.
Yours truly, Tharangi
Dear Marg, The OET results are out, and guess what? I cleared my exam with 'B' in listening, reading and writing and 'A' in speaking. I am extremely relieved! I greatly appreciate all your support and can't thank you enough.

Hi Marg, Remarkable, but I got 4 B in OET test!!!! The results were announced today. Thank you very much for your help. The intensive preparation course with you was fundamental for my success.
Best wishes, Dr F, Royal Women's Hospital, Victoria, Australia.
Hello Marg, It's Sabina here. I got the results of my OET today and I have passed. Listening- B, Reading- A, Writing- B, Speaking- B. Was hoping to get another A in Speaking, but I'm happy. I don't know about the other results. Thank You very much for all the help you have provided.
Best regards, Sabina
Dear Marg, With thanks a million for your kindness, I apologize you that I have replied your e-mail so late. Actually in the last week I have not had internet access all the times. As you might have heard, in my country internet is sometimes disrupted; moreover, I have not been in a good mood recently and it is because of all the problems that we have faced recently here. In spite of all disappointing problems I am trying and I think it might have a good effect for younger compatriots. I paid attention to the last corrected writing and rewrite it but I was not sure whether I should send it or not. With hope that in future our children would be able to live freely,
With regards, Mitra
Hi everyone, Finally I got my midwifery registration and I will start my career on 21/09/09 in a Private Hospital. Thanks for your help, support and prayers. It's a big achievement for me as the process was so time consuming and tests were extremely hard. I 'm very happy.
Dear Marg, I attended in your OET writing classes (a 4-session and a one-day). I would like to tell you that I passed my OET and I think your class was really helpful to let me pass the exam. Many thanks for your help.
All the best, Roya
Dear Marg, I passed this language exam (OET) on 28/11/2009 in Melbourne. Thank you all what you have done for me. Thank you very much. Lastly, I shared with you: I have to stress that God give me the confidence and a hope. It is very powerful. I am pretty sure that every dot in our life is God's plan. You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - marriage, exams, life, family, work, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
All the best, Don
Dear Marg, Iam pleased to inform you that I have passed the OET exam. I got A in Listening and reading, B in Writing and speaking.

Again, am grateful for your help and advices.
